Online Degrees and Courses in Ireland
Ireland is a small country with a big reputation. There are only about 6 million people living in the island of Ireland, although the Irish diaspora (Irish emigrants and their descendants located outside Ireland) totals more than 80 million worldwide.
Despite its small size, Ireland has made significant contributions to the arts and sciences. Authors such as Jonathan Swift (Gulliver's Travels), James Joyce (Ulysses); and artists such as Jack B. Yeats and Daniel Maclise would have all called Ireland home. Scientists such as Lord Kelvin (of the Kelvin scale), Robert Boyle (Boyle's law) and Francis Beaufort (Beaufort Scale) were also Irish.
The Irish higher education system is rapidly developing through the continued interest from European students in studying in Ireland. Recently the rising costs of university education in the UK has meant a lot of potential students in the UK are considering Ireland as one of their options.
